Replating of unusual Antique Brass hat rack




I have a hat rack (with mirror) circa 1850 that has very long brass covered hat holders. I had it professionally refinished and it is beautiful, with oak like none other I have seen! Who can tell me if someone can replate or if I should buy new fixtures? The old ones are rusty, but very pretty, complete and ornate. Thanks.

Dear RK Horton,

I checked the platers in Tennessee in the AESF shop guide and didn't see anyone that electroplates Brass. Two ideas, Yellow pages Business to Business (under electroplating, plating, surface finishing), (I'm hoping you tried the shop pages on this site first) and/or you could finish the parts in nickel - gold (more shops offer the finish).
